Ed Brown, aka “Big Ed,” took to Instagram on October 24, 2021, to share a series of photos of himself alongside SNL star Kenan Thompson, hinting he’d be making an appearance on the hit NBC sketch comedy show.
“Here I come SNL..! @kenanthompson #biged #thisisbiged,” he wrote in the caption of the post.
As excited as Brown appeared to be in the photos, the fans did not seem to share his excitement and slammed him and the show for his potential appearance.
One Instagram user wrote, “Damn. SNL calling on ANYONE with NO talent these days!!!” Another fan wrote, “Does this guy realize all the attention he is getting is from people laughing at him, and watching him make a fool of himself.”
Others alluded to Brown’s actions while appearing on 90DF, including one Instagram user who wrote, “… Dude you should be ashamed. Look at the way you acted on TV. I’m embarrassed for you, yet y’a keep posting.”
Another fan wrote, “Ok why are you on the single life season 2!?! You are the typical man who doesn’t know wth you want in life. Always talking s*** about you feeling sorry etc…but in reality all you want is attention. Stop with the bulls***…don’t get womens hopes of having a life with you. The way you treat them is not ok.”
Just the day before, Brown posted a series of images on Instagram on the set of the MTV show “Ridiculousness,” and fans didn’t care for that either.
Big Ed Is Under Scrutiny Following Sexual Assault Allegations
Some of the comments on the Instagram post centered around the accusations of a TikTok user, lordakeet, who has accused Brown of sexual assault, according to Screen Rant. In addition, the outlet reported a leaked phone call between Brown and his fiancee, Liz Woods, revealed “verbally abusive conduct.”
“Why are so many people giving a platform to this predatory garbage bag human,” one Reddit commenter wrote, in response to a post about the possible SNL appearance. Another fan on Reddit shared the sentiment, writing, “I don’t even really care about SNL but don’t give this creep more positive attention.”
Other fans commented on him dating women closer to his daughter’s age, like user sonarquest77 on Instagram who wrote, “Are you still preying on girls half your age?” Another wrote, “you know this man has assaulted female right! He grooms young women then abuses them emotionally and physically,” and tagged NBC, the network that broadcasts SNL.
